rundown. joining me now becky quick. so you guys are calm, right? remain calm, all is well. >> reporter: yeah, all is well. things are going well. actually it's good news that you have two different plans on the table. that means you can make progress even if it seems like those two plans are worlds apart. hey, they have a blueprint for how they can get to a compromise, get to middle ground. one thing we've been watching, how firms are acting differently ahead of the fiscal cliff. you have a lot of companies, over 110 now, that have talked about how they're going to be doing special dividends or increased dividends in the fourth quarter just in the last few weeks or a year because they want to make sure they bring the dividends from next year into this year. if we do go over the fiscal cliff, dividends will be taxed at more than 44% versus the 15% they're taxed at now. so companies are trying to find a way for shareholders to get in a little bit early no matter what happens with the fiscal cliff. >> all right. you know what, you can take the two plans, are split them down the middle. yo
the world's greatest living explorer is about to cross antarctica on food. becky anderson spoke with him and i asked her about the conditions he faces. >> he is already considered the world's greatest living explorer. this 68-year-old british pioneer has today marked the start of the coldest journey on earth. that is crossing the ant ark arctic on food in winter. we are talking at 2,000 miles in almost complete darkness in temperatures that plunge to minus 90 degrees celsius. as he told me, if anyone on his team gets injured, they are on their own. >> if we run into problems like that, there is no help. all the rescue facilities shut off. that's why every government, the americans, the germans, have rules you do not let civilians go down there in winter because if something happens, they will become an embarrassment to their government. >> well, after four years, he managed to get permission and his ship is on its way. he told me there's just one thing he's looking forward to before he sets off and that is a long, hot, soapy bath. it will be his last for six months. >> wow, that is prett
. becky anderson is live in london. wow, becky. this is unbelievable. i've never heard of anything like this. how is this guy supposed to survive? how does he do this? >> well, i think that's what they're going to learn, whether they can survive. for six months in the dark, suzanne. let's remember that it's winter between march and september in antarctica, so it will be dark for most of the time, and as you say, the temperatures will be below 90 degrees centigrade, or 130 degrees fahrenheit. that is something else. as with all these expeditions worth their salt, they'll be carrying out some scientific experiments. they'll also be raising some $15 million for seeing is believing, which is a global charity to prevent blindness. there's lots of good reasons why they're doing this, but if you are arguably the greatest living british explorer, there is more to it than that. there are two words that i think come to mind when you talk to explorers. that's ego, and this great sense of competition. have a listen to what he said about that. >> people that wanted these records as much as we do are
, though. our tech guru, becky worley is here, with great tips. >> thank you. >> great to have you in person. usually see you by skype. >> in my kitchen. but i'm here to help you with all of the gadgets you received as gifts. >> one of the biggest gifts of the year, ipads, iphones. let's start with them. how do we protect them? >> this is the time. you got your great gadget. if you're in love with it, take care of your little baby, okay? what you're trying to avoid is turning this into this. ooh. we do not want the cracked screen. >> it is like one fall and it can happen. >> absolutely. and especially when teens are getting these gifts. the thing you'll notice is a lot of people say, put a case on it right away. this thing is like a tank. putting this in your pocket is a serious endeavor. there are some with a little more silicone with rounded corners. those seem to do the best job protecting you. i do a lot of drop testing, intentionally and unintentionally. and what really makes a difference is a screen protector. when you put one of these on your phone, it really helps to protec
